Fremont brings back summer tradition

For the first time in five years, the Central Park Summer Concert Series is back, restarting a summertime Fremont tradition. It all starts Thursday with a free performance by Appaloosa, a country-rock group that often plays the Saddle Rack, a Fremont country-and-western nightclub.
Each of the summerlong performances will be held at the Performance Pavilion in Central Park. The new venue was constructed last year for Celebrate Fremont @ the Park, the city's 50th anniversary celebration event.
The series will continue through the summer on these alternating Thursday evenings.

The Harry Potters Youth Concert. July 3,2007 Tuesday 7-8:30 P.M.

-All of the concert series performances are free and open to the public.
The Performance Pavilion is near the Fremont Community Center, 40204 Paseo Padre Parkway, off Mission View Drive.

Fremont School Board meeting tonight

Chris De Benedetti reports that Keith Wolff and A's consultant Jim Cunneen will present their plan at a FUSD board meeting tonight. FUSD has been keenly aware that there's no elementary school at Pacific Commons and at the very least one would be required there for the projected 700 grade school students. Some accommodations would have to be made for a large number of secondary school students as well. New to the plan is the concept of placing the school on the city's 40-acre parcel, where a train station and park are planned. It seems like a reasonable use for the property, but there's one issue: the school would be separated from the neighborhood by at least the 0.6 miles I cited earlier. The school would be far more attractive if it were well integrated into the neighborhood, but using city land would be a much cheaper alternative. FWIW I'd rather see a land swap between the two parties to make the school work within the neighborhood confines - important since the residential area will be a gated/limited access area.
